Interracial Marriages At An All Time High In America

Jack Kurtz,MSNBC

One out of every twelve marriages in the U.S. right now involve an interracial couple, and that is an all time high.

The Pew study found that more than 15 percent of new marriages in 2010 were interracial.

I think this is a good sign, as race becomes less of an issue with the people of the US.

Some of the other statistics that the study found revolve around location and specific races that marry.

Hispanics and Asians are the most likely to marry someone of a different race, but the biggest jump in share since 2008 was among blacks.

States in the West were among the most likely to have couples who “marry out” — more than 1 in 5. The West was followed by the South, Northeast and Midwest. By state, mostly white Vermont had the lowest rate of intermarriage, at 4 percent.

About 83 percent of Americans say it is “all right for blacks and whites to date each other,” up from 48 percent in 1987. As a whole, about 63 percent of those surveyed say it “would be fine” if a family member were to marry outside their own race.

This is encouraging for our future, knowing what a point of difference race has been in our past, to see that we are slowly moving passed it.
